We have been putting off having our gutters cleaned for years. Not only that but we didn't know a reputable contractor to perform that service. I found Thumbtack, and received 5 quotes with reviews. Stephen McKenna replied within hours with a reasonable quote and assured me that he would be able to do the job by the end of the week. I was delighted, especially because it is December and I thought it was too late. I gave him the chance to change his quote because our house is big, but he did not. He came when he said, cleaned up the area to perfection, and even emailed me before and after pictures of my gutters. Stephen McKenna does all types of home improvement work; I would hire him again and recommend him without hesitation. GS-Seekonk

Fantastic job by OSA Home Improvement. Elsayed began work immediately and stayed late to finish the job the same day. I had a variety of tasks that another plumber did poorly, from reinstalling several shower fixtures to fixing a drain vent to clearing out a slow water faucet. Elsayed also installed some dimmer switches for me at a reasonable price. He is friendly and polite and works very hard to solve your problem for you. I look forward to working with him again!

We could not be happier with the work that Billy did on our deck. Our back deck was in rough shape, and as new home owners it was important to us that the deck be repaired properly and quickly before the spring. We were very happy with Billys estimate, his workmanship and just working with him overall. He was here every day, working until dark to get our deck completed and we could not be happier!! We will definitely use Billy again in the future!

They did a good job overall - they were on time and completed the project well. The only reason I didn't give five stars was that their english speaking skills were weak and it was tough to communicate with them...

Since moving into my home last year, Mark has been a very helpful resource in getting my outdoor space tailored to my liking. He provided a quick estimate after visiting the property, guided me through all the steps I'd need to take to prepare for the installation and then did a nice job installing sprinklers on my property. He then took care of turning the sprinklers off and on as the seasons changed. I'd definitely recommend Mark for sprinkler installation jobs.

As a real estate professional and homeowner I look for quality workmanship, dependability and a fair price when I need a contractor for my own home improvements or to recommend to my clients. Troy always met or exceeded my expectations, and I can trust his opinion and recommendations for myself and my clients. He had high professional and ethical standards which adds value in my book!

KZM was a great partner renovating a room in my house. Ralph replaced an old floor (linoleum covered by wall to wall) and put down a wood floor. He also did electrical work and painting. He was timely, thorough, had great follow-up and kept everything incredibly clean. I would highly recommend KZM for any home improvement efforts.

RJ Development delivered impeccable service. I admit I was hesitant based on a negative review previously written, however the way Rich followed up with me, and answered all my questions really put me at ease. He took the time to come to our home to clarify what was needed. He kept to the pricing. This is a very nice contractor and very personable. I would recommend him without hesitation!

Michael has done MANY projects at my home. Because my house is a turn-of-the-century victorian, there is no such thing as straight walls, doors, frames, floors, etc. Michael's job becomes so much harder because of the imperfections that are my home. He is always willing to go above and beyond to make sure we are happy with the result. I can't say enough good things about his work ethic and her abilities!!! He is a one-of-a-kind hard-working professional!! If only I could clone him!!!

Great job at a great price. I love the retaining wall and concrete walk Fernando and the team at Disere construction did at my home. I needed a retaining wall to keep water from running into my driveway, even in the dead of winter they came out and built more than just a functioning wall, they created art! We couldn't be happier!

Home Improvement Options exceeded our expectations with the kitchen remodel for our upstairs unit. They are more than willing to work with you with any questions or requests you have. We were very pleased with the responsiveness and professionalism. We also had to work during the day and left our second unit open for them to finish the job. With that being said they are extremely trustworthy as well.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the contractor.

How do I plan a bathroom remodeling project?

If you’re stumped on how to plan a bathroom remodeling project, it pays to hire a designer. This is especially important if you’re changing your bathroom layout in any way. Designers create contractor-friendly drawings indicating exactly where each tile and fixture will be installed, down to the light switches. This investment might cost you $300-$500 but save you significant frustration and miscommunication, while ensuring you get precisely what you want.

If you’re going to do your own design, planning a bathroom remodeling project means being organized and planning ahead. Create a general outline of what you want and the budget you have. Identify the specific fixtures, tiles, paint and vanity you prefer. Get all this organized before requesting quotes from two to three reputable general contractors. Once you find the right pro, get a written contract outlining scope of work, materials that will be used, timeframe and payment schedule. Communicate clearly about when to order your materials so they are ready and waiting by the time the contractor gets the permits. Your job from here is to communicate clearly, pay the contractor as the work progresses, and enjoy your remodel when it’s done.

Where should I start when remodeling a bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Before starting a bathroom remodel it’s crucial to know what you want and have a clear understanding of your maximum budget. If you’d love all marble fixtures but have $3,000 total, you will have to compromise. Being realistic about materials and money before you even contact a contractor will have you on the road to success. Here are some simple steps to follow in the planning stages of bathroom remodeling:

  • List your remodeling priorities in order of importance (e.g., 1. New shower head, 2. Replace flooring, 3. Install recessed lighting, etc.).
  • Calculate what you can realistically afford to spend on your bathroom remodel. Identify an “all in” price — meaning the absolute maximum you’re willing to pay, as well as what you’d prefer to spend.
  • Gather ideas from Pinterest about colors and finishes.
  • Research the costs of the materials and finishes you want and begin making choices about what is and isn’t possible to fit into your budget (once labor is included). If you’d like to stay under $10,000 total, but really love a $2,000 tub, plan to downgrade in other areas.
  • Request quotes from at least three reputable general contractors, share your vision and ideal materials, and work together from there.

How long should a bathroom remodel take?

With proper planning and a good general contractor, your bathroom remodeling project doesn’t have to take forever. The construction phase of the project will always vary based on your scope of work, the square footage and the condition of your bathroom under the surface layer. Inevitably an 80-square-foot master bathroom with major changes will take longer than a 25-square-foot guest bath undergoing a minor renovation. For a smaller bathroom, a facelift — the industry term for sprucing up the surface layer (such as paint, vanity, tiles or light fixtures) but keeping the existing footprint of the space — may take five to eight working days, as long as there are no surprises like mold waiting when the old vanity comes out. A more complex bathroom remodel that revamps the shower area (customizing the plumbing, installing tile and changing the shower door), updates the flooring and cabinetry, and adds new paint and new lighting could take anywhere from one week to three weeks. A full bathroom remodel that guts the room, changing the footprint and moving the electrical wiring and plumbing lines, could take four to eight weeks or more. To keep your bathroom remodel on schedule, have your materials ordered and waiting, and don’t make any change orders once construction begins. Planning is key to keeping a bathroom remodel on schedule.

How do I remodel my bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling is made up of three general phases. The first phase is the planning and permitting phase, in which you determine exactly what you want, what materials and finishes will be used, and what the end product will look like. If you’re competent with design you can handle the planning yourself, or you may hire an interior designer to guide you. During this phase you’ll also hire a general contractor who can help execute your remodel vision, coordinating and overseeing all the subcontractors required to do the bathroom remodeling (plumbers, flooring pros, etc.). When your plan is finalized, your contractor should obtain permits for the work you want done. During this time you’ll work together to order all the materials so they’ll be ready and waiting when it’s time to start construction.

The second phase is construction. Bathroom remodeling typically starts with demolition, removing the old floors, shower and vanity to make way for the new. Delays in delivery of materials, or changing your mind and ordering different materials halfway into the project, will mean that construction has to pause until the new materials arrive. Each subcontractor is dependent on the next to do their work, and the general contractor should keep things moving along at the proper timeline, ensuring that the right materials are available and dealing promptly with any unexpected repairs, such as damage discovered behind the walls or under the floor. The general contractor will also coordinate inspections from the necessary officials if you’ve moved load-bearing walls or done electrical or plumbing work. After construction is complete, the final phase of bathroom remodeling is addressing your punch list. These are all the items that need to be corrected before final payment is handed over to the contractor.
